A Cock and Bull Story

Film

"A Cock and Bull Story" is a 2005 British comedy film directed by Michael Winterbottom. It is a film-within-a-film, featuring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon playing themselves as egotistical actors during the making of a screen adaptation of Laurence Sterne's 18th century metafictional novel Tristram Shandy. Gillian Anderson and Keeley Hawes also play themselves in addition to their Tristram Shandy roles. Since the book is about a man attempting but failing to write his autobiography, the film takes the form of being about failing to make the film.

Medicine Through the Eyes of Writers by Stephen McWilliams

Michael Winterbottom's A Cock and Bull Story (2006) starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon was not a direct translation of the novel; given the latter's erratic time sequencing, such an endeavour would have been far too tall an order for any director. Instead, in a truly selfreferential style very much keeping with the novel's theme, A Cock and Bull Story is a film about the making of a film based on the novel.
